Genoa is home to a unique branch of the railway network, unwinding over East-West routes and inland tracks that connect to Northern Europe.
The city's central stations are Genova Piazza Principe (the main departure/arrival point to and from the North and West) and Genova Brignole (the main departure/arrival point for connections to the East and South). Travelling by train is undoubtedly one of the most convenient ways to move around the city (on the line connecting the neighbourhoods along the coast, from Voltri to Nervi).
Genoa is also daily connected by direct Thello trains to the South of France; arrivals and departures from/to Monte Carlo, Nice, Antibes, Cannes, Saint-Raphael, Toulon, Marseille, without border train changes.
